Given the current state of COVID-19, we regret to inform you that Skate Ontario will be cancelling Sectionals Series #1 – Minto Summer Skate, scheduled for July 23-26, 2020. This decision has been made in consultation with coaches about required preparation time for events and the continued inability to access ice in the province.
Skate Ontario is currently working on how this will impact the qualifying system, more details to follow in the coming weeks.
As a reminder, Skate Canada announced that due to the uncertainties with COVID-19, the National Summer Series will not be sanctioned for July and August of this year. Additionally, the Challenge Minimum score requirement will be removed for the 2020-2021 competitive season.
In addition, Skate Ontario will be hosting a Facebook Live this Wednesday, May 6th at 7pm EST, to talk about the release of the 2020-2021 Events Calendar and the impacts of COVID-19 to the events schedule. Tune in Wednesday evening to hear updates and ask questions.
